there was a san francisco interface council there was the san francisco conference on religion, race and social concerns which for 25 years was the voice of social justice in the city and county of san francisco. it was that movement that gave birth to the san francisco interfaith council whose mission it is to bring people together of different faiths, to celebrate our diverse spiritual and religious traditions, build understanding, and serve our city. it was a previous mayor that challenged the interface council to step up to the place, to respond to its moral responsibility to care for the homeless at a time of crisis spun out of control, and we did. for almost a quarter of a century we have opened our congregation doors, fed and provided a warm and safe place for homeless men to sleep during the coldest and rainiest nights of the year. it's been this mayor and his predecessors who look to what happened at hurricane katrina, saw the key role that congregation leaders, facilities and congre gants can play at the time of a diseafert disaster and called us to stakeholders and mayor lee invi
of religious beliefs. so why would you choose scientology? perhaps the most stigmatized religion in this country. >> what do you think it does for people? that's the thing i can't get to the bottom of. what does it give people? >> at the beginning level when you go in and get auditing which is their form of therapy, a lot of people feel like they are helped. that's what draws people in. they ask what is ruining your life? what is your ruin? if you say, well, it's my relationship or my profession or something, they say we have something that can help you. and sometimes that's true. >> is recruiting celebrities -- they have this celebrity center in hollywood. was that a conscious effort by the church and is that for pr reasons? >> absolutely. these are product endorsements. the church of scientology was created in los angeles. the celebrity center in hollywood, all of it with the design to take over the entertainment industry. there were people that they were actively recruiting. they were always looking for that efigure that would be a prominent member of the entertainment industr
clinging to their guns and religion? >> yes, these are the people that he believes he can move and persuade to be in favor of gun control in states like west virginia and wyoming. it's not going to happen. i will be very surprised if this thing ever gets out of the senate. i think speaker john boehner love the idea of saying that we will give serious consideration to whatever harry reid senate passes and sends to us in a matter of gun control. it's a terrible issue for democrats. i don't think obama has the loyalty among democrats in gun control that he thinks he has. jon: hairy weed has the support of the nra in times past. >> yes, harry reid cannot cross the nra. there are voters in a lot of these places. the nra doesn't speak for them. this is a popular position among actual voters and you can see the red states with blue feathers. jon: good analysis as always. thank you so much. >> it's great to be here be to growing pressure on the senate to do something they haven't done in four years. we are talking about passing a federal budget. republicans in the house trying to force senators to

about in marriage law and a lawsuit in another state, we hear this issue about religion. i may be overreacting a little bit, and if so, thank you for calling in. host: ron has this tweet. let me follow up on the point that many religions still don't identify same-sex marriage as a marriage. guest: many don't, and yet, many do. if you read the papers and follow the news, many people in states that do not legally recognized marriage, many churches perform ceremonies and go through ceremonies in their faith communities. a broad range of faith. it is wrong to think that religion is in one place on this. religion is all over the map on this. even within religions, there are enormous debates within a variety of sects of how to deal with same-sex couples, gay or lesbian clergy. this is a debate that is going to be going on for quite awhile but i think that the movement of history is on the side i am one. host: let me go back to one of the earlier caller is discussing adoption and the restrictions put in place. of course we know what has happened in russia, where they say no to various
, we are moving in our country to maybe a state religion which says anybody who is -- who leaves homo ickes allity is biblically untrue is a pariah and fall back to the neanderthal days and we're forcing a religious belief on the catholics and muslims and all these religious groups who happen to believe that homosexuality is inappropriate. you should be able to believe what you want to believe but i don't think the government should force a religion on to a nation of people where we have so held, cling to our idea of religious freedom. someone told me -- this is a high level person, heads up a think texas -- that george southerlies funded an organization that is going into churches to tape sermons for the fact that going forward -- i believe section 501(c)(3) but the bob jones university lost its tax exemption because they had a policy against interracial marriage, and that was against public policy. so what this section of the irs says, 501, if you are against public policy, your tax exemption will be gone. so the belief is that -- that's may sound con pierer toal -- they want to get
continued violation of the right of freedom of religion. we call on the iranian authorities to release mr. aberdeen any. the department of state is in close contact with the family and actively engaged on the case. we have reached out to the state department directly but so far no word on what next steps that agency may be planning. gregg? >> shannon bream life in washington. shannon thanks very much. heather? >> horrific scene in brazil. raging fire killing more than 230 people. this happened in a crowded nightclub there. at least 200 more were injured. the flames sweeping through the club in southern brazil early this morning. panicked party goers. they say they were trying to breathe, gas gasping for air. while stampeding the exit already blocked by bodies. witnesses also said that flare or fireworks that were lit by band members that i about started the blaze. >> this fire in brazil appears to be the deadliest in the past decade. the tragedy bringing to mind some other fatal nightclub fires like this one at the coconut grove club in boston nearly 500 people were killed there. more tha

to king darius. suddenly between the jewish religion, not just israel, the jewish population worldwide. i believe you put a very big t. on this. i admire everything you said, but i believe one of the worst stress push yourself, any one of us if we're ahead of what they did to iran. this is the right and affected the other repaired, is fragile in my opinion. i know iran. i know the whole royal family. i traveled with the empress. i believe everything you said is right. i want a quick question. i don't want to distribute. what about the islamic republic. what'll happen there? that's very key. they're going to give relations to israel, under the table relations. what is your opinion? >> trust is a very difficult issue. we argued in the book at the well-known antidote to trust his transparency. i think for many americans, this issue comes squarely focused on the nuclear issue today that with this lack of trust we can't possibly trust whatever the iranians may or may not say or do with the iaea, international monetary mechanism. for many americans, they're never going to trust the republic in
tradition kept alive in the vatican walls and it has turned this faith into a third world religion. do you see any connection between a vow of celibacy, put in place in 1100 ad so priests could not leave wealth to their kids, in this unhealthy behavior that we don't see manifested in religious that don't have this celabicy rule. >> you're right. the problems with the celibacy rule many believe that the sexually troubled catholic teens and young men who have bizarre scary, sexual urges they believe that celibacy is a gift from god and if they pledge themselves to a life to god and in church they will be suppressed of these urges. that's are a nice hope but the practical reality is that many instances the reverse plays out. when you restrict your pool of potential ministers to only men who have promised to be celibate you're bound to attract less than healthy individuals and you're going to create situations in which many, many men, if no one can have sex of any sort, then many men will have a sexual secret. and if you have a sexual secret you're not going to rat out priests who are abusing
matters of religion and birth and marriage, and it was thought by ben gurren that these people who were already small in number and fairly isolated would eventually play themselves out. the early secular zionists thought the ultra-orttext would kind of die out. they didn't. they have lots of babies and their families grow and grow, and, "therefore, their proportion is larger. they don't serve in the military. they get enormous subsidies so that their kids can just study and not entertain mainstream of society. and main stream israeli society-- not just secular society-- is tired of that. they're tired of footing the bill. they're tired of seeing their kids serve in the military and not their kids. and yair lapid exemplifies it. >> rose: dennis, weigh in now, having listened to both of them, and you've spent as much time as anybody i knowepresentinthe itedtatein t region. >> i agree with pretty much both what david and port said. let me just add a couple of point, one, picking up on the last theme of sharing the burden. you you know, there is a joke that has gone around israel for some t
, it was a replica of the one that thomas more wore when he defy the king's unjust laws against religion. and from colombia, mr. o, you and miller should not rule out that we're the happiest people in the world here. most of us appreciate simple things like family and friends. been to colombia, a beautiful place especially cartagena. and we want to see the fresh show, are you coming to colorado? >> and we're going to the nokia, d.c., april 26th. long island june 1st and details on billoreilly.com. if you can't see us in person, bold and fresher dvd's. monica, short, north carolina, my grandson alex, a fifth grader did a report on killing lincoln. i read it monica, excellent work for the tyke. and killing lincoln top five. and from italy, mr. o, please come here and rescue us from american liberals like george clooney. hopefully the italian government will make him pay his fair share on his majestic villa. i want to go trick-or-treating at his place and i may come over to lake cuomo around halloween. a great place, i love that whole area up there. and finally factor tip of the day. last night i rec
to the lds church and what challenges it poses when they are picking a college. we knew his religion was extremely important to him. he seemed like a very nice guy, like a very thoughtful guy. that continued through college and i followed this story as well and was at the heisman ceremony when he was talking about this stuff when apparently he had already been told it was a hoax. it's just really weird and raises a lot of questions. >> manti te'o, gail, released some of the voice mails that he said came from this person that he believed to be lennay, the girlfriend online. let me play a clip. >> hi, i'm just telling you know i got here and i'm getting ready for my first session and just want to call you to keep you posted. i miss you. i love you. bye. babe, i'm just calling to say good night. i love you. i know that you're probably doing homework or you're with the boys or i want to say i love you and good night. i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best. yeah. so get your rest and i'll talk to you tomorrow. i love you so much, hun. sweet dreams. i don't know who answered your phone and
things that differentiate us and make us unique whether gender or race or religion, all of these things fall aside when you are there putting the mission first and selflessly serving as that member of a team. i can tell you from my my first hand experience that whether in training or deployed setting those things are not what's crossing your mind when you are operating. >> but make no mistake when she talked about gender there, what women will have to do to join these front line units is pass the same standards of physical fitness, scholastic, it will all have to be the same as the men. this will be gender neutral. >> do we know how quickly this will happen? >> the pentagon says they want to have an implementation process and get it done by 2016. there is still a big outclause on all of this. the services, military units could say at the end of the day they want an exemption and they don't think they can have women in the units. you hear the same issues, personal hygiene, can women pass the physical requirements, all of this still on the table. so panetta knows and chuck hagel was suppo
. i am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality. this hindu-muslim-christian- jewish-buddhist belief about ultimate reality is beautifully summed up in the first epistle of saint john: "let us love one another (yes), for love is god. (yes) and every one that loveth is born of god and knoweth god. he that loveth not knoweth not god, for god is love. if we love one another, god dwelleth in us and his love is perfected in us." let us hope that this spirit will become the order of the day. we can no longer afford to worship the god of hate or bow before the altar of retaliation. the oceans of history are made turbulent by the ever-rising tides of hate. history is cluttered with the wreckage of nations and individuals that pursued this self-defeating path of hate. as arnold toynbee says: "love is the ultimate force that makes for the saving choice of life and good against the damning choice of death and evil. therefore the first hope in our
is somewhat distressing, we are moving in our country to maybe a state religion which says anybody who believes homosexuality is biblically untrue is some kind of a pariah, and so we're forcing a religious belief on the catholics and on the muslims and all these religious groups who happen to believe that homosexuality's inappropriate. whatever each of you believe, you should be able to believe what you want to believe. but i don't think the government should force or a religion onto a nation of people where we've so held, clinged to our idea of religious freedom. someone has told me, and this is a high-level person who all of you know, he heads up one of the think tanks, that george soros has funded an organization which is now going into churches to tape sermons for the fact that going forward -- i believe it's section 501 and not necessarily 501(c)(3), but the bob jones university lost its tax exemption because they had a policy against interracial marriage. and that was against public policy. so what this section in the irs says, 501, if you are against public policy, your tax exem
's own body should be left up to that woman in consultation with her doctor, her family, and her religion, not the federal government. there's now a generation of women who do not remember the time before roe vs. wade. a time when men assumed they could say what women could and could not do about their personal private health care and reproduction. we still have a lot of work to do. unfortunately, over the past 40 years there have been numerous legislative attempts to deny this right to women and treat women who exercise control over their own bodies as criminals. we have to make sure that we defend also title 10, maternal and child health care programs, public access to reproductive health care, and that we re-authorize the violence against women act. but we must remember the time before roe vs. wade. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from colorado seek recognition? if the gentlewoman from colorado is recognized for one minute. ms. degette: thank you, mr. speaker. yesterday in his inaugural address our president reminded us o
about their religion and their gods? we have they warfare going on around this country. we are talking about gun control. if i want to see somebody taken now, why do have to go inside a school? guest: i want to thank the caller for his service in vietnam. this is one of the big shifts in its war effort than i write about in my book. the major philosophy for insurgents was socialism, communism, often allied with nationalism. that change in 1979 we saw the rise of jihadism as the dominant force driving terrorism around the world. he saw that with the takeover of the embassy in iran. he saw that with the soviet invasion of afghanistan. you saw all those things coming together in a way that empowered jihadists. tendency to saya tennesse that they are fanatical. the history suggests otherwise. and proper strategy that we implemented in iraq which focused on security and tries to provide some of the legitimate needs of the people who want economic growth and jobs and freedom. a strategy like that can be successful. we saw that in the surge in iraq. do not lose heart. the reality is most insu

, and then it talks about egyptian. it doesn't talk about their sex or religion or sex. it continues talking about egyptians as persons. so that's the whole thing. >> when you wanted to say something? >> [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: i believe that the west must be aware of something. now, after the revolution the west wanted to deal with arab regimes that were similar to his own regime, similar to his own situation. they thought that the situation would be similar to what they had in the west. however, the people in the arab world don't want that. they want respect for their own specificities, they have their own conditions and their own contexts. what do we want as arab people? we don't want women to ware the veil -- wear the veil to remove the veil, we don't want to force them to wear the veil. we don't want to force anybody to do anything. now, of course, we are witnessing this movement and this transformation in our society, and we have some people who might force their wives or their daughters to wear the veil or to remove the veil. however, this is not the opinion of the mainst
